So let go my soul, and trust in Him.
It is well with my soul.
Through it all.

My eyes are on You.

It is well with me.

find rest.

Praying for you.

I pray for peace, for the shalom of Jesus to fill your land.

I pray for your leaders to be good, to be just men and women.

I pray this would be a time where Jesus will be revealed to you and known by you.

I pray that the Church would see you and would stand in the gap for you.

Matthew 11:28-30.

May you be the land of the free, in Jesus’ name.

 

my Good Shepherd, take my hand and lead me on.

shakings.

A few weeks ago, I was in my first earthquake. I was so afraid. There were many elements of the shaking that made it scary. I was in my condo and I don’t trust the buildings here. I was alone and I didn’t know what to do. I didn’t know if I should stay inside or go out. For many reasons, it was frightening. But perhaps the most frightening thing was seeing how much fear I had. I had no control, no understanding, no directions, no one else…and I was scared. 

After the shakings stopped, I was left broken. I saw me in my raw state. I saw how I lacked trust in God. I saw how I was so desperate to seek shelter and safety elsewhere…not in Him. The earthquake, so much more than physical, shook me to the core. 

It’s so easy to sing songs and confess to Him with words about surrender, abandonment, trust. But in those raw moments, sometimes it’s much more difficult to whole-heartedly surrender…for abandonment to be the natural response. 

Twas sobering to learn this about myself and see how much more I need to grow. 

Always learning, always growing. 

Sometimes, the shakings are good. 

Sometimes, the shakings must take place to show the greater that’s to come. 

only You.

My heart breaks for Korea. I’m so burdened..the mourning is so heavy. Comfort Your people, Lord. It’s only You, Jesus, that can. Come and comfort. Come, Lord Jesus, come.
